Hosea 9:2-12

NLT 2 So now your harvests will be too small to feed you. There will be no grapes for making new wine. NIV 2 Threshing floors and winepresses will not feed the people; the new wine will fail them. NLT 3 You may no longer stay here in the ’s land. Instead, you will return to Egypt, and in Assyria you will eat food that is ceremonially unclean. NIV 3 They will not remain in the LORD's land; Ephraim will return to Egypt and eat unclean food in Assyria. NLT 4 There you will make no offerings of wine to the . None of your sacrifices there will please him. They will be unclean, like food touched by a person in mourning. All who present such sacrifices will be defiled. They may eat this food themselves, but they may not offer it to the . NIV 4 They will not pour out wine offerings to the LORD, nor will their sacrifices please him. Such sacrifices will be to them like the bread of mourners; all who eat them will be unclean. This food will be for themselves; it will not come into the temple of the LORD. NLT 5 What then will you do on festival days? How will you observe the ’s festivals? NIV 5 What will you do on the day of your appointed feasts, on the festival days of the LORD? NLT 6 Even if you escape destruction from Assyria, Egypt will conquer you, and Memphis will bury you. Nettles will take over your treasures of silver; thistles will invade your ruined homes. NIV 6 Even if they escape from destruction, Egypt will gather them, and Memphis will bury them. Their treasures of silver will be taken over by briers, and thorns will overrun their tents. NLT 7 The time of Israel’s punishment has come; the day of payment is here. Soon Israel will know this all too well. Because of your great sin and hostility, you say, “The prophets are crazy and the inspired men are fools!” NIV 7 The days of punishment are coming, the days of reckoning are at hand. Let Israel know this. Because your sins are so many and your hostility so great, the prophet is considered a fool, the inspired man a maniac. NLT 8 The prophet is a watchman over Israel for my God, yet traps are laid for him wherever he goes. He faces hostility even in the house of God. NIV 8 The prophet, along with my God, is the watchman over Ephraim, yet snares await him on all his paths, and hostility in the house of his God. NLT 9 The things my people do are as depraved as what they did in Gibeah long ago. God will not forget. He will surely punish them for their sins. NIV 9 They have sunk deep into corruption, as in the days of Gibeah. God will remember their wickedness and punish them for their sins. NLT 10 The says, “O Israel, when I first found you, it was like finding fresh grapes in the desert. When I saw your ancestors, it was like seeing the first ripe figs of the season. But then they deserted me for Baal-peor, giving themselves to that shameful idol. Soon they became vile, as vile as the god they worshiped. NIV 10 "When I found Israel, it was like finding grapes in the desert; when I saw your fathers, it was like seeing the early fruit on the fig tree. But when they came to Baal Peor, they consecrated themselves to that shameful idol and became as vile as the thing they loved. NLT 11 The glory of Israel will fly away like a bird, for your children will not be born or grow in the womb or even be conceived. NIV 11 Ephraim's glory will fly away like a bird-- no birth, no pregnancy, no conception. NLT 12 Even if you do have children who grow up, I will take them from you. It will be a terrible day when I turn away and leave you alone. NIV 12 Even if they rear children, I will bereave them of every one. Woe to them when I turn away from them!
